Such a small parcel shouldn't cause experienced smugglers much trouble, but this parcel is far from normal.

Lost and scared after a violent storm, Finn and his sister, Aria, take shelter on a remote island. They discover the parcel contains a relic belonging to a long forgotten people. Locked inside are powers which will change their lives, and the world, forever.

As Finn realises his connection to the relic, a vision strikes him - but what does it mean? Who should they trust? And if they decide to follow their hearts rather than their orders, will they manage to deliver the relic in one piece?

Chased across the seas as they try to solve the mysteries within the parcel, the fate of this ancient people depends on them. Finn and Aria must choose between what is right and what is easy - and time is running out ...

Praise for Eternal Seas: "A thrilling and magical adventure with plenty of hair-raising chases and a villain readers will love to hate. ETERNAL SEAS is a must-read for young fantasy fans." Madeline Dyer, author of the Untamed series

"ETERNAL SEAS is a compelling adventure that weaves mystery and intrigue into a tantalising plot for the reader to enjoy. The writing has a lyrical quality and almost seems to capture the movement of the sea as the story unfolds. A very enjoyable read." Jude Lennon, author of Hal and the End Street, the Lamby series and other children's books

"An exciting debut novel that takes us on a roller coaster adventure ride over high seas to mysterious places and brims with magic and intrigue. Young readers will love this book." Shalbey Bellaman, author of Dragons in the Looking Glass and Jack in the Wallows

My Review

I managed to listen to this book in one sitting, as it is only 3 hours long but in those 3 hours, you are swept along in the fast lane on an adventure like no other. Delivering a parcel, which Finn and Aria have been told DO NOT OPEN, by their father reveals so many secrets that they did not know. Plus obviously, the parcel was opened!

This relic they are transporting is not any normal relic but one that Finn has a true affinity for. It calls to him, where their travels across the seas.

This is a middle-grade book, aka Young Adult and a nice easy listen to fill a couple of hours. Something you can so easily lose yourself in, it brings a smile to your face as you are swept up along the way. Eternal Seas is unrelenting in such a fun way and it most definitely leaves you high and dry at the end as you now need to listen/read to the second book to find out what happens next!

Until next time xxx

About Lexi Rees

Lexi Rees grew up in the north of Scotland but now splits her time between London and West Sussex. She still goes back to Scotland regularly though.

Usually seen clutching a mug of coffee, she spends as much time as possible sailing and horse riding, both of which she does enthusiastically but badly.

Her first book, Eternal Seas was written on a boat; the storm described in it was frighteningly real.

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:

  1. Awesome! thanks so much 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the narrator Chris Dickins – I was so excited when I first heard his audition tape and all the voices. PS – of course the parcel is opened! That’s the number one rule!
